Future Doctors at Headington Oxford
Headington Oxford | Ages 13 – 16
Future Doctors introduces students to the theory and practical skills needed to become a doctor, dentist, sports scientist or other healthcare specialists. Designed for students aged between 13 and 16, this programme provides students with their first step towards a future career in Medicine. The Future Doctors programme acquaints students with key considerations in the study of Medicine, such as: what pathologies are and how they are treated; how medicine is applied in emergency situations; what ethical considerations there are in the treatment of patients; and what students need to do in order to study Medicine at the university level. As part of the Future Doctor programme, all students will complete a full first-aid training course.
Designed for the doctors of tomorrow, our innovative and forward-thinking Future Doctors course enables students to both learn the theory and start to develop practical skills needed to be a doctor. This course integrates knowledge of the world of medicine with key academic skills and competencies throughout the programme, including independent learning, critical thinking and scholarly writing. As well as receiving a certificate and report at the end of their stay, students will leave with a recognised First Aid qualification.
